More insider guides for planning a trip to New Orleans
New Orleans is an experience-driven city, and its reputation for celebrations is well founded – the annual rowdy observance of Mardi Gras being the most famous example. History and tradition are held in equally high reverence, though, and there’s an entire industry of tours that can connect you to the city’s fascinating past. Culture and art are always a bubbling undercurrent, and the city’s museums pay testament to the talent here. It’s also a city that’s well aware of its relationship to nature, the Mississippi River and its parks there as a tranquil escape from the clamour.
